Red Pepper And Tomato Sauce

I am quite an aware person, and I know my shortcomings. One of them is that I love to talk! I really enjoy a good conversation and can chat away for hours. I do know that sometimes I need to listen as well 🙂 This said, I have met someone who talks more than I do, and who does not stop to hear what other people have to contribute to the conversation. Quite sad actually, as there are people out there who have better knowledge on certain topics and this person is missing out on learning more about things they are passionate about. Part of my daily conversations includes the one at night, over the butcher’s block that Dave and I have about dinner. We always talk about what we are cooking and how to cook it. Sometimes he does not listen properly – but most times he does. This red pepper and tomato sauce is a great example of how we arrive at a simple meal.

  1. Listening is a skill that we all need to perfect! So, since I’m raw this month, I did your sauce without stock and tomato paste in the blender. It’s really nice and has a great flavor. Of course, once I’m eating regular again, I’ll use this over salmon.

I would ♥ to hear from you (comments will be visible when I reply)
